Logitech V470 Mouse

Logitech on Tuesday released the V470 wireless mouse for notebooks. The mouse is close in spirit to the V450 but swaps RF for Bluetooth, permitting many notebook computers to take advantage of the higher precision of a laser sensor without needing an external dongle. The pointer supports Bluetooth 1.2 and intelligently hops between frequencies to avoid choppiness when Wi-Fi is also switched on. Running time is also reportedly long at four months of regular use before requiring a fresh set of batteries.

V470 owners have access to more than just the basics with horizontal tilt scrolling on the mouse wheel as well as a zoom function for close-ups on images. Logitech promises support for the mouse in both Mac OS X 10.2 or later as well as Windows XP and Vista, and says the controller will ship before the end of the month for $50.
